As part of a record gift to the School, Frank M. Sands Sr. (MBA ’63) dedicated $7.2 million as a challenge match in Smith’s honor to fully renovate C. Ray Smith Alumni Hall into a hub for alumni engagement and lifelong learning.
Dean Scott Beardsley explains how the Darden Annual Fund is powering the School’s response to an environment upended by the coronavirus and describes how new gifts ensure Darden navigates the challenges ahead.
Three former Genovese Fellows recently launched scholarship funds of their own to support future Darden students, leveraging matching funds from the UVA’s Bicentennial Scholars Fund to maximize their giving.
A student committee recently assessed Darden facilities, offering suggestions for how current spaces could continue to support the world’s best MBA education experience.
The career search is both challenging and stressful for students, which is why the School has tapped the Darden Annual Fund to fuel innovation and expanded support for students through investments in the Career Center.
A pair of Darden classmates and fellow venture capitalists have completed the first close on the new fund, meeting its preset threshold to begin operating and making investments.
